May is National Elder Law Month!
May is National Elder Law Month, a time to raise awareness of the legal planning issues affecting seniors and their families. This month was created as an opportunity for Elder Law attorneys to broadcast the importance of a proper estate and long-term care plan. Perhaps you implemented a plan many years ago. Over time your family situation changes, and this month serves as a reminder that as we age, we may face unique legal challenges that require a fresh look at your estate plan to assure it includes a plan for long-term care should the need arise.
As elder law attorneys, Burke & Casserly, P.C. specializes in a range of legal issues affecting older adults, including a plan to protect your assets should the need for long-term care and Medicaid arise; assistance with the daunting task of filing a Medicaid application for your loved one who may need nursing home care; crisis planning to shield as much of your loved one’s assets as possible if pre-planning was not completed; devising a cohesive estate plan to ensure your legacy is distributed as you intend; guardianship proceedings; and supporting the family with post-death help with your loved one’s estate or trust administration including the probate process.
This Elder Law Month, take the time to learn about the legal issues facing seniors and the resources available to help them. Share this post to spread awareness and show your support for older adults in our communities. #ElderLawMonth #ElderLaw #AgingGracefully #SeniorCare #EstatePlanning #Medicare #Medicaid #LongTermCare.
